PLACING BOLTS IS ILLEGAL IN THE SUPERSTITION WILDERNESS! Details
In the early '90's the USFS banned all placement of bolts in the Superstition Wilderness. This unfortunately includes replacement of existing bolts. Violating this ban may result in climbing restrictions on this beautiful area. Please think twice and go bolt somewhere else.
Follows Mack’s rap route on east face of the throne, starting ten feet left of large Desert Spoon.
P1: Step off boulder using big solid jugs to gain lichen face. Climb up lower-angled face and crumbly bulge. Continue up another face to groove with crack and good belay ledge (90 feet).
P2: Angle right to top of small bulge, then face climb to horizontal crack. Follow vertical handcrack to upper belay (50 feet).
P2 var. Climb runout, 5.6 groove above mid belay ledge to summit (50 feet).
